Something's not right

Scene 6 opens with Charlotte and the Orchestrators talking together at night

Eli: What makes you think there’s something wrong with Mr. Paris?

Charlotte: When I was talking with him, he started ranting on about how people didn’t like his shows and that he was going to show them that he can. He was being pretty aggressive about it.

Geoff: Huh, that is really weird. I’ve never thought of him being aggressive.

Eli: Besides, even if he is being aggressive, it’s probably because he’s anxious for this weekend.

Charlotte: *sighs* I guess you could be right.

Eli: We can talk more about this tomorrow morning. We need to get some sleep if we’re gonna be practicing a lot more now.

Charlotte: Okay, let’s go.

All: *walk back to their cabins*


Conductor: *walks around the performance lodge, searching for any teens* Oh, finally. Now I can finally be alone!

(The Conductor’s Theme starts playing)

Conductor: You may not have ever heard of me, but I’m the man you’ll never want to see. I’m the one who watches you late at night, just to see if you’ll be in the spotlight. And this is where I have chosen to come in, to put an end to all of this singing. Singing was one thing I wanted to conduct, but all I got was words telling me I sucked! This is the reason why I do all these things, because I can’t stand it when you people sing! It gets irritating when you guys do it all the time, I’ve been told never to conduct throughout my lifetime! I’m the Conductor, the master of the keys, and if you don’t mind, stay out of my way, please! This is my introduction, this is my song! In this camp is right where I belong! Conducting is what made my parents and others bored, that’s why I’ve been stuck with nothing but a keyboard! I’ve only been able to follow my parents’ plans, until I show them I’m a conducting man! Conducting, is what I was born to do! Of course, it’s very true! And this mic, here in my hand; Will make me feel so grand! I feel that I need to sing once more, just so my words soak down to your core! You all must remember my name, you don’t want to feel my wrath or shame! You all need to know just how I feel, because my struggles are also real! You think that your lives are doing so swell, guess what, mine was a living hell! This is the reason why I do all these things, because I can’t stand it when you people sing! It gets irritating when you guys do it all the time, I’ve been told never to conduct throughout my lifetime! I’m the Conductor, the master of the keys, and if you don’t mind, stay out of my way, please! This is my introduction, this is my song! In this camp is right where I belong! Conducting is what made my parents and others bored, that’s why I’ve been stuck with nothing but a keyboard! I’ve only been able to follow my parents’ plans, until I show them I’m a conducting man! Conducting, is what I was born to do! Of course, it’s very true! And this mic, here in my hand; Will make me feel so grand!

(The Conductor’s Theme stops playing)

Conductor: *sighs* If only I wasn’t just singing to myself. *deeply exhales*


Charlotte: *runs up to Eli* Hey, Eli!

Eli: Hey, Charlotte.

Charlotte: I’ve been thinking about something last night.

Eli: What?

Charlotte: Ken York and Billy Travis haven’t said a word to anyone since Eric and Genevieve disappeared.

Eli: You think they could be the ones behind Eric and Genevieve’s disappearances?!

Charlotte: It wouldn’t hurt to at least go and talk to them.

Eli: Whatever. Let’s hope they aren’t ‘aggressive’ like Mr. Paris.

Both: *walk over to Ken and Billy who are both trying to correctly tune an electric guitar*

Billy: Hey, Ken. Look who it is.

Ken: *looks at Eli and Charlotte* Oh, it’s you guys. What do you want?

Charlotte: We want to talk to you about something.

Ken: About the disappearances of Eric and Genevieve? I don’t have anything to say about ’em.

Eli: Why is that?

Ken: Eric was a total jerk, always bragging about how much better he was a guitar than I am. He got what he deserved if you ask me.

Charlotte: I know he was a jerk, but what if he was killed?

Ken: That’s a bit extreme, but he definitely needed to be taught a lesson.

Billy: And what about Genevieve?

Ken: She was cute and all, but her step brother Geoff doesn’t like me. I’m not really sure why though.

Eli: *sarcastically* Yeah, I wonder.

Charlotte: Okay, well, we’re gonna go and practice for this weekend.

Ken: Yeah, you go do that.

Charlotte and Eli: *walk away from Ken and Billy*

Eli: And you thought Mr. Paris was aggressive.

Charlotte: You sure Ken’s not the one behind the disappearances now?

Eli: I have no clue what to think about him right now.

Charlotte: He definitely showed how he feels about Eric and Genevieve disappearing.

Eli: That dude has no chill.

Charlotte: He doesn’t seem that different from Eric except for the fact that Eric was more chill. If he’s so angry about Eric’s attitude, he needs to check out his own.

Eli: Unless he gets taken before he has the time to check. *scoffs*

Charlotte: Oh, stop it. With his aggression, he’s probably going to be the only one to not get taken.

Eli: *shrugs and nods in agreement* Sounds accurate to me.

Both: *laugh*
